It is very unique compared to other standard deathcore bands.
skeith
It is quite good, my buddy's band shared the stage with them recently and I sampled them on a whim finding them to be amazing.
John Dudek
The musicians in this band are all very adept to what they do, and have honed this skill expertly.

Most bands that get as heavy as VOM start to lose their creativity throughout albums but, VOM writes so that the listener does not become sidetracked while listening which makes them original in this genre. They are very talented musicians and were just on a tour with necrophagist!I would compare them to Necrophagist because of the low vocals, but VOM loves their off timing breakdowns that Necrophagist does not. Must have album!

Veil Of Maya's "The Common Man's Collapse" will not fail any true deathcore fan. It is very unique compared to other standard deathcore bands. With a great record label (Sumerian) and release, soon the whole world will be jamming this cd. This cd is nothing more or less than great musicianship, and these guys surely have a great future. Definitely worth the buy!!!

Smoosh the melodicness of At the Gates or Black Dahlia Murder with the technical precison of Meshuggah and Beneath the Massacre and you get this. It is quite good, my buddy's band shared the stage with them recently and I sampled them on a whim finding them to be amazing. Most songs leave you windmilling lone after its over. Any "breakdowns" in this album are tight and techy enough to keep even a shred-type fan like myself interested. Each one isn't the pinnacle of the song like most bands who write breakdowns in. Amazing leads and drum work make all the more fun. highly recommended for Fans of The Faceless, Meshuggah, Black Dahlia Murder or Beneath The Massacre.

This CD is good a little short but good. Would recommend this to any one who like them or other artists like Born of Osiris or After The burial.

Albums like this make me proud. Why? Well, for starters this band and I are from the same hometown(Chicago, IL). There are a number of new bands emerging everyday so it's nice to see that some of them are from my own stomping ground and are also a good listen.

I must first say that the playing style of Veil of Maya may really have to grow on you due to the fact that they really do not sound like your usual deathcore band(or your usual band to begin with). Yes, they are deathcore(*gasps*) but they have a little more progressive playing style then most other bands in their respected genre. Like I said before, they really do not sound like your typical deathcore, though. One thing you may immediately notice about this album(and their 1st album as well) is they don't try to "DOOM" and "BREAKDOWN" and "BREE" you to death like most deathcore bands. Breakdowns are still present, just not overly predictable like one would expect from this genre. The music here sounds like kinda like this:

DEATHCORE - BAD STEREOTYPES + PROGRESSIVE x RANDOMIZATION + GOOD LYRICS = THE COMMON MAN'S COLLAPSE

These guys are indeed very technical and only after 6 or 7 listens would you possibly realize just how intricate they make their music. Guitars are very heavy and guttural yet clean. The shifts from each segment in the songs are usually quick, somewhat unpredictable and even a little odd sometimes. However, it is not without reward. Listening to this album can be like looking for hidden treasure sometimes because a fair portion of the songs sound decent(yet somewhat expected), and then turn around and throw in a guitar riff/solo or a quick number from the drummer(i.e.: the last song - "It's Torn Away") that just puts a smile on your face every time it plays.

By Stephen VINE VOICE on December 18, 2008

Not exactly my taste in regards to the vocals (cookie monster vocals), but the musicianship in this band is phenominal. TIGHT, TIGHT relationship with all the instruments. I love the polymetric breakdowns these guys go into. It's mindboggling to me how these guys are so tight with the various polyrhythmic patterns they go into. Even the avid Meshuggah listener will be challeneged with the polymetrics of this band. I used to not be able to stomach these types of vocals but I'm glad I've learned how, because I love the musicianship in this band. Since vocals are a matter of personal preference and I recognize it takes talent to sing like this, I give this album 5 stars, EASILY.

deathcore has some pretty awesome bands, and Veil of Maya is one of them. after listening to this band and The Faceless, I can only guess that the rest of Sumerian Records' roster is this talented too. this band sounds like a mixture of deathcore, progressive, and technical. it is a band that is hard to pigeonhole. the solos are terrific. if Veil of Maya is this good, then I should get some more Sumerian bands.
